Vert Cerise helps with Christmas

I came across this shop on Etsy– it’s as cute as a button! I was kindly sent two mini cahiers. Laetitia, a charming French lady, is offering a discount of 20% for my readers on her Etsy store so when you are checking out put in the code “OHLALA20”. Get your orders in quick before Christmas. I really love her stickers. All her pieces are handmade in France. I love the idea of that. Add some originality to your wrapping this year, it changes a gift completely!

Christmas and Cleopatra’s Bling

It’s been so busy here. Why at the end of every year does everything get so hectic? I don’t know why people think that the world ends every Christmas, it should be about having fun!

I absolutely adore wrapping presents. It’s something that I look forward to. I get very elaborate… rose petals, cinnamon sticks, dried Autumn leaves, handmade cards. I have been wrapping orders today from my boutique Cleopatra’s Bling. Then I send them off to loved ones and everybody is happy. I don’t know anybody that doesn’t enjoy receiving a present in the mail, do you?

This Winter I’ll have ears

My latest purchase. I’m waiting impatiently for it to arrive. It’s the latest big thing in Asia, so it will probably hit Europe in the next few months. For the time being I’ll be a lone cat in Paris.

These girls look like perfect dolls with cat ears.

The hat is 100% felt wool, perfect for the chilly days in Paris town.

Roses, Petals and Elephants on a Holiday

Flowers make me so happy. And I always put petals in cards and presents when I am giving somebody a gift. Seem ridiculous? Yes, but I live for that kind of small detail.

I am drying petals to make cards for Christmas.

The pink rose matched my coca cola bottle vase so perfectly- I just had to!

And I cannot forget Ganesh who needed a bit of cheering up on this cold, dark Winters day in Paris.

How did you spend your day?

A Kids Cupcake Class with Jolis Kids Paris

For my special little 11-year-old friend’s birthday, we got her a cupcake that she could invite 7 of her best friends to. In this day and age where kids are spoilt rotten with material goods, we thought it would be good to do an old-fashioned “hands-on” event. Jolis Kids Paris does all kinds of parties for children. Nathalie was great and kept the 7 children entertained for two hours.

All of the enfants went home happy with their little box of goodies excited to show their parents. It was so so precious.

1 Year Anniversary of our PACS love in France

One year ago J and I signed a piece of French paper to declare us a couple under French law. We had an afternoon tea and champagne gathering to celebrate. Check out these absolutely gorgeous cakes, what a spread!

When we tie the knot one day it will be even bigger and better. I’m thinking in a garden somewhere in Australia. With lots of flowers. Yes I’m a dreamer.

The Beginnings of Cleopatra’s Bling.

I am thrilled to announce the birth of Cleopatra’s Bling.  For a while now I have been thinking about bringing together the best of all my traveling and the beauties of the places I visit in starting a small online e-boutique.

I can now offer you the best of these worlds; jewelry inspired by the gorgeous women in Turkey and India.

All my pieces come from the local artisans. I have met the families that craft these pieces, they are all unique, thought up by the locals. I have seen them make the pieces, and there are no underpaid workers involved, they are families.

Here are a few examples of what I sourced on my last trip to Istanbul.
